Guess how long it will take some ice to melt.

That’s it. That’s what this game is. I can only assume that the rejected ideas for this were “Guess how long it takes the paint to dry” or “Guess how long it takes for the Daily Express to print a Princess Diana related headline”.

No. I won’t.

Here’s just how much fun this game is:
